[video clip] >> we made the right decision not to expand medicaid. we are building a bottom-up alternative, delivering better health care for our people. host: your take. guest: they are not expanding coverage to uninsured residents. if you think that is important, it is not going to accomplish that. he may not want to spend the money on that. there are concerns about not enough primary care doctors. there may be interesting things with health care delivery at the state level in the way that medicaid is carried out. know where are they attempting to get health coverage to these folks, with one possible exception in wisconsin. scott walker has shifted some of the medicaid people onto the exchanges and offered medicaid. that may be on hold because of the problems at the federal exchanges. host: when you look at these decisions, who is making the decision, the governor or someone else? guest: for the most part it is governors who were never interested in the first place, like governor bobby jin

though people like jeb bush, i'd bobby jindal, like chris christie, have been critical of the republican party, particularly in washington, the washington republican party. they somehow managed to do it from within, and i can't put my finger on why. that just doesn't translate the same way. i think he would be a constructive force. i would like to see him be a bigger factor than what he is. in the republican party. but really, outside of some moderate democrats like you in academia, via the jon huntsman contingency is quite small. >> hello. my name is jacob wagner. i'm chairman of the new hampshire college of republicans and -- >> hello. i know who you are. >> i tweet you an unhealthy amount during the week. >> i'm glad to see you look normal. [laughter] you do have like a twitter fascination with me so, you know last night i like you already. keep tweeting spent i agree with you so much i can't help it. i was an intern on jon huntsman's campaign. as much as it breaks my heart i agree with your analysis. i know i just want to really quick say thank you though for having the guts to call

bobby was an enlisted man teenager. he had that credibility to make that charge. we're going to where kennedy gave his great american university speech. i'll allude to that. kennedy gave this great speech there the peace speech. but he said something i remembered ever since i read it. problems of man are manmade. they can be solved by man. in the past man has solved the seemingly unsolvable. he can do it again. that sense of national confidence that we can solve our problems especially the ones we create can we bring it back. i think that's what the country want back. they want trust. there's a lot of trust problems out there because promises were made for health care. that's a trust problem he has to deal with. i think he's also a very difficult opposition out there of people on the other side not boehner but people behind him that boehner has to deal with who from the very beginning wanted to destroy this presidency. some is just good old ideology. the way they treated this guy is unusual in our history. that ought to be pointed out. maybe tonight is not the night to do it. >> i wou

, including our own representative kennedy who, in the lega siff his grandfather, bobby -- legacy of his grandfather, bobby, acknowledged the need to embrace the immigrant issue. so i ask my colleagues in the majority on the other side of the aisle, what are we waiting for? our job creators want reform. our work force wants it. our spiritual leaders say it's the right thing to do. and overwhelmingly so do the american people. the facts are so clear that reform will tremendously benefit all of our country. in fact, the congressional budget office has followed the money and they estimate that immigration reform will increase gross domestic product $700 billion in 2023, and $1.4 trillion in 2033. but here we are today facing government shutdowns and sequester levels that eviscerate services so that many vulnerable americans rely on and this is where we are stuck. it's been five months, five months since the senate passed their bill, and yet we have only six days scheduled until the end of the year, and we haven't had one serious vote on immigration reform. americans have put their differenc
